I had been trying to get a good picture of a Goldfinch for some time with little success, so I improvised. I put a piece of a tree root on the back
porch brick wall and spread some bird seed along the wall. Later on that day I looked out to see this Goldfinch sitting in the middle of the tree root
and was lucky to get some pictures before she flew away.
